Do you see a white cursor in any of the modes? You should have a normal Arrow cursor when in the paths tab.

I see proper cursors in the 3D Terrain window.  I never see any cursors in the map window on the left (i.e. the separate window where the 8-bit MyTerrain.bmp shows up).

(Patch 78)
Thanks, I'll try that. I'll be looking to see if the segments can be made to merge.

I did notice that in this edition the rivers are above ground with the riverbanks unpainted.

Here are a couple of (jpg) things to watch out for, especially in-game.

When I drop a bridge across the river, or set a radar tower next to it, they are hidden where they intersect.
I built a quick terrain with the Alps, then threw a river into it. The river shows through the mountains.
Easy in-game again.

Rivers will be above ground.

2 to 5 feet, not sure of the minimum yet, it is simply a z buffer fighting issue.

I feared as much. Glad I don't have to do that balancing act between the terrain and the nearby objects.
